Description: Volunteers should meet at Fisher's Cemetery maintenance building at 10 am. After briefly outlining the work day and safety measures, a supervisor will coordinate volunteers in cleaning headstones and markers, trimming and clearing vegetation. The cemetery is the final resting place of thousands of local residents. Volunteer efforts to keep the cemetery in good condition are much appreciated.
Fisher Cemetery dates back to 1852 and is the oldest pioneer burial ground in Clark County.
Volunteers: 25-50 volunteers needed. This is a family friendly project and appropriate for volunteers or all ages. Youth under the age of 18 must have a signed parent permission form. Youth 13 and under must come with a guardian. All volunteers must sign a liability waiver.
Parking: Parking is available at the cemetery.
Clothing and Tools Needed: Volunteers should wear long pants, closed toed shoes with sturdy soles and gloves. The City will provide a limited number of tools, so volunteers are asked to bring sod shovels, edging tools, and similar tools suited to the work.
